    Lol it's difficult to review this exact recipe, mainly because i stuffed it up, lol!

    I only had 1 pack of lamb mince (500gms) and was merrily following the recipe amounts until i went to add the lamb and dried spices and then realized i needed to halve them all. Ultimately the extra onion, garlic, ginger, mint and parsley i had already added was just as awesome with half the mince and half the spices, i would still highly recommend this recipe if you don't have the amount of lamb mince in your freezer that the recipe requires.

    Very authentic flavours, lovely with mint yoghurt and greek salad
